In a little over 48 hours, we will be in our hometown of Ketchikan, Alaska. I have missed it. Brenda and I have not been there in 15 years. I'm looking forward to it a lot! One thing I'm not looking forward to is the rain! This came from the Wikipedia entry on Ketchikan:
The town was certified in 2005 as the fourth wettest spot on earth, with nearly 200 inches (5100 mm) of rain (the general range is 130-170 inches/3300-4300 mm)
It rains all the time there. If you are from the Portland area, you can try to imagine it by quadrupling the rainfall in the Portland area!
